FROM THE EDITOR
Our front page story today highlights a couple of things.
Firstly, that places like Tokoroa and Putaruru are in a good spot and secondly, people are becoming more mobile in their quest for a traditional Kiwi lifestyle.
As roads gradually improve [debateable in some places around here], and vehicles become more fuel efficient, the ease of travel makes places like this very attractive to the real estate refugees in the larger centres.
Two hours of travel a day is not much fun - believe me, I’ve been there! But not being able to afford you own home is no fun either.
For many displaced families in Auckland, Tauranga and even Hamilton, setting up roots in regions like South Waikato is the only way to get a piece of the pie.
We have what everyone wants - the quarter acre dream - and that will attract exactly the sort of investment we want. Young families bring the sort of energy, goals and aspirations that last for generations.
